Food - King prawn linguine with chilli and garlic.

First food post right here. Today I decided to boycott the traditional Sunday lunch, not really a decision I made more one I was forced into due to all other sociable humanoids being in the pub watching out local team playing football!
I seized the opportunity to run to my local supermarket and settle my king prawn linguine cravings.
I made king prawn linguini with chilli and garlic, so so simple but delicious and served it with roasted vine cherry tomatoes and ciabatta bad with olives and oils.
It was so simple and including prep took less than 20 minutes. I put the water for the pasta on the heat and while waiting for that to boil I chopped 2 red chillies and 3 cloves of garlic. I then popped a part baked ciabatta into the oven which had been preheated to 200 degrees and placed the cherry tomatoes, still on the vine, into a baking dish and added 2tbsp olive oil and a little sea salt and dried chilli seasoning on and placed on the shelf above the ciabatta.
Then when the water had boiled I popped the dried linguini pasta in, it was just guess work on the amount and then popped the chopped chilli and garlic into olive oil I had heated in a frying pan.
I let the oil really cook the garlic and chilli through and added the cooked king prawns after around 5-6 minutes. When they had heated through I removed the pasta from the boiling water and added to the chilli prawn concoction and mixed those through.
I popped some balsamic glaze on a plate then served up a helping on my king prawn linguini, adding any of the juices left from cooking, garnished with chopped basil and added the roast tomatoes to the side. I served it with the warm ciabatta with butter, olives, basil oil and balsamic and there it was, my romantic Sunday lunch for one. All that was missing was a glass of red wine.
